Ha! TWO Wagon R Wide Turbo Manuals on DIYEFI.org :-D

Nice score, mine's rough, but that looks tidy. Thanks for posting :-)

Ha, yours is getting more like mine every day! :-D

If I were to modify mine, as opposed to fix it... I would likely upgrade the intercooler and maybe the turbo if I could find something small enough that spools OK, and revert the BOV situation to some factory skyline/subaru/evo one from the obnoxious SSQV one on it now :-)

Your front bumper setup is different to mine. I think I prefer mine, but it's hard to tell with your two tone paint scheme. Of course, yours looks mint, mine's had a frontal and other more minor abuse in the past.

Rice wagon to the max with under car lighting, suits the car! :-D

recirc is fine, vent is fine, loud vent is obnoxious, and certainly no steal about it with the air filter/intake off and an SSQV on it. Conspicuous is the word! :-)

Never had so many old people yelling at me to slow down (while I'm going slow) and girls checking me out (who are half my age). Turns heads. In good and bad ways :-D
